Anne-Sophie Heist is a French-German photographer who has been based between Shanghai and Dubai for the past 15 years, working on a wide range of photography assignments for overseas and local clients.

With a keen eye for color and authenticity, she focuses on capturing feelings that speak beyond the immediate visual impact of any photograph and create a connection between the viewer and the object.

Her extensive knowledge and network working in China and the Middle East help her to think quick on her feet and laterally across many different pools of experiences, languages and potential cultural barriers that may arise during advertising campaigns for a foreign audience.
